I have watched a beautiful row of blooming Cannas for 10 years now but when we went to the DRs office this year, it was gone. I would love to find a start of them but in researching have not found the same type.
dwarf ( about 2 1/2 ft tall)
pure green foliage
brilliant red blooms
delivering blooms all summer long
They looked patriotic and made me happy to see them. Can anyone suggest a cultivar I should search for? I have decided I need a start. LOL
In comparison to the height of the plant, I thought the blooms were faily large but it could have been deceptive. I never stopped to look more closely. Do you have some thoughts on what I should shop for?
I wish... it is over 100 miles from home, on a major highway, in front of a business. DH already "knows" I'm loopy. If I got caught molesting the soil he would probably let me sit in out in jail. Think I'd rather make him buy them for me. Mind you, I am not above raiding green stuff. LOL
Thanks for the thought. We just went by it this past Monday and I hope to not go that way for another year if I can help it. Will just spend my spare time shopping for Cannas and getting sidetracked by all other kinds of plants.
Does anyone recommend a good supplier of Cannas? Someone with a wide selection maybe?
